Rupert Murdoch

Leave Prince Harry Alone!

Rupert Murdoch
's got Prince Harry's naked back ... telling the world to give the young royal a break over his recent Vegas scandal -- not surprising, since Murdoch defied the Royals by publishing the pics.

Murdoch tweeted Saturday night, "Prince Harry. Give him a break. He may be on the public payroll one way or another, but the public loves him, even to enjoy Las Vegas."

TMZ broke the story ... the prince was photographed bare-ass playing billiards in Las Vegas this week and the photos quickly made the rounds all over the world. But the Royal Family was none too happy and pressured/banned British media outlet from publishing the pics.

Enter "The Sun" -- one of Murdoch's many media companies -- which published the nudie pics anyways.

Well played.

Harvey, enough already with Naked Prince pictures. We get it...he was in Vegas, he let his "royal hair down" and did something that happens there everyday..got naked with a chick. Give the kid a break. He's in his 20s and is a life long public figure who will forever be scrutinized. Have Fun Kid - you deserve it.

My entire family and I are "the public", and we don't love him. I think he needs to grow up.

Leave the kid alone! Just THINK about the worse thing YOU have ever done............now think about it appearing on TV, radio, newspaper, magazines and your family seeing it. Why would anyone want to crucify Prince Harry when you don't even know him and have no reason to want him to suffer pain!

Murdoch is just happy because he didn't have to hack into anyone's cellphone--for once.

According to the UK Independent, it was Rupert himself who called the editor of The Sun and ordered them to run the Harry pictures. Wonder what the old man will be tweeting in a few weeks when UK prosecutors release the names of hundreds of celebs whose phones his 'news' organization hacked into.
